Ahascragh Mill dates back to the early 1800s and up until the 1950s processed grain into flour. Located in the heart of the village and steeped in history, the mill complex has remained derelict for the past 70 years. The building will have a new lease of life with plans for a world class whiskey experience and hospitality destination inside a working craft distillery in the village of Ahascragh, County Galway.
Ahascragh Distillery will be the home of our spirits. The old mill will be converted into a whiskey and gin craft distillery, in the heart of the village. The distillery will be powered by renewable energy and at its core will be a passion and drive for a carbon neutral operation.
Through tours, tastings and workshops, the visitor centre will offer an intimate and unique experience. A permanent exhibition of the salvaged mill equipment will celebrate the history of the buildings while also exploring Irish whiskey making and the future of the Ahascragh spirit.
Located in the heart of the village, The Old Mill Shop & Café is a part of our story. Now open, the shop and café serves delicious food and sells our finest brands. Bespoke pieces of furniture inspired by the old mill, using salvaged equipment, are pride of place in the café and shop.
